Charlottesville Area Transit Study Underway

Posted: Updated:

Big changes could be on the way for public transportation in the city of Charlottesville.

A new nine-month study is underway to figure out how to organize and run the Charlottesville Area Transit.  Annual ridership has increased from 1.35 million in 2004 to 2.4 million in 2011.

One alternative is the trunk-and-feeder approach.  That would get buses deeper into neighborhoods, but requires more transfers for riders.

The study will cost $116,000.  An open house is set for August.
